The Audience Broadcast By National Theatre Live says
Nominated for three Tony Awards®, The Audience sees Helen Mirren reprise her Olivier Award-winning performance as Queen Elizabeth II, following her Academy Award® win for the same role The Queen. Encore screenings of the original West End production of The Audience, captured live in London in 2013, feature an exclusive Q&A with Stephen Daldry and Helen Mirren.

For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting known as The Audience.

From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair right up to today’s meetings with the current incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all matters both public and personal.


National Theatre Live is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast the best British theater from the London stage to theaters around the world. Productions are filmed in high definition in front of an audience with cameras carefully positioned to ensure the “best seat in the house” view. Experienced by more than 3.5 million people in more than 1,100 venues around the world, National Theatre Live productions transport all the excitement of one of the world’s great theater companies from the South Bank to the Straz Center’s Ferguson Hall.
